Reach hundreds of thousands of buyers from all over the world
We directly distribute auction catalogues in printed or digital form to more than 7,000 prospective buyers.
Furthermore, auction items are also presented in online catalogues on our website with more than 10,000 regular visitors. Our auctions often attract media attention, thanks to which the auction items reach hundreds of thousands of people. The auctions are also promoted on various numismatic portals, such as sixbid.com, coinarchives.com, numismatika.cz, burza-minci.com, and others.
Hammer prices that exceed expectations
We hold several world auction records for coins and medals from the Czech Republic and Slovakia.
However, the sale prices achieved in our auctions often exceed expectations even for common items. For some items, the final price reaches 4-5 times the original estimate of the seller or the public. We also have experience in organising auctions focused on auctioning specialised coin collections, such as the outstanding collection of Mr. Kokolus or the collection of Mr. Novák from Prague
We accept auction material all year round
We always recommend that our clients approach us in the time between two auctions. In other words, not right before the deadline for accepting material for the next auction. This results in multiple benefits for you as our client:
You have more certainty that your material will be listed in the next auction.
We do not usually duplicate auction items to prevent competition from arising. Therefore, when we accept items, we follow the rule that we list items chronologically in the order in which they were received.
Material accepted for auction sometimes needs to be compared with specimens in other collections or museums. Naturally, this process requires a certain amount of time.
We can give your items our full attention and list them in the auction catalogue with the most accurate information (descriptions, references) possible.
We can promote the auction items during our marketing campaigns or personal meetings with clients.
For valuable material, it is possible to agree on advance payment.
How does cooperation with us work?
If you are not sure whether your material is of value or whether it is suitable for auction sale, we would be happy to assist you.
Do not hesitate to contact us through the form below or via e-mail. All you need to do is send us a photo of your material and we will get back to you as soon as possible. Of course, you can also visit our shop in Bratislava or Prague to discuss the value of your items and the possibility of listing them in auction. If we agree on placing your material in auction, we will explain all the details to you in advance – the Sales Commission Contract, acceptance certificates, our obligations, assumption of risk, insurance, and the whole process of our cooperation.
Do not hesitate to offer us attractive collectibles. You will certainly not find better care, professional background and affordable prices on the market in our region.
